WILD WOMEN STORYTELLING
A WEEKEND DIVING DEEPER INTO THE ART OF STORYTELLING WITH WOMB AND HEART.
During the weekend we'll explore our own femininity, storytelling from the womb and authentic movement of our feminine form.
We'll connect to our physical impulses as creative performers drawing on the improvised elements of the art of storytelling. There'll be a strong focus on creating ritual spaces using sound, objects and movement to support each woman's storytelling.
Each woman's story will become an active and interactive ritual with her audience. She will choose the tools shared in the workshop which work for her and make them her own.
A story that touches you and calls the Wild Woman archetype within you.
A yoga mat for the warm up - or let me know if you don't have one.
Women seeking to connect their present experiences of womanhood to ancient archetypes. Those new to storytelling and those with experience in theatre and storytelling are all welcome.
This will be unique journey guided by Deborah - in response to the needs of the group.
She will tailor feedback as well as lead group exercises and offer participants space to explore.
Saturday and Sunday, June 15th and 16th 2019
from 10.00 a.m. until 6.00 p.m.
The Wildgoose Space
